Tatum earned his reward for his second-round heroics as he is reunited with his son, Deuce, in almost two months. Following the five-month hiatus, the league’s biggest concern was ensuring the safety of players and staff. And it’s safe to say they took care of that department pretty well.

Initially, players weren’t allowed to bring any family members to the Orlando Bubble. However, as the Playoffs progressed, the league allowed them to bring in their close relatives or family members.

So far, the 22-year-old has led his team to a respectable postseason run. But the end goal is still eight wins away from the Celtics. They are on a quest for the championship banner #18 and honestly, the current Celtics team can achieve that feat.

Unless the Celtics completely choke against the Heat defense, they should come out as the winners of this series. But we can never be too sure about anything in the NBA. The Miami Heat have already proved their abilities in the Playoffs, as they have lost just one game so far.
